NYSE Technologies recently published a white paper on the security architecture of its Compute On Demand offering. Below is an abstract of that paper. If you’d like the full version, please fill out the email questionnaire at the bottom of the page.
Security was one of the key factors impacting the ability to migrate financial services IT operations into the cloud. Service providers, end-users, and enterprises all require methodologies governing ownership, transfer, and continuity of data to ensure a secure environment. At NYSE Technologies, our services have been founded on the basis of multifaceted security that is in accordance with industry standards and compliance.
Most sell side firms begin their operations within close proximity of a data center. Through our Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI®) – a NYSE Technologies managed global private MPLS VPN network – clients can gain secure and low latency access to a dedicated network of exchange markets in a virtual cloud environment.
Even though working in the cloud entails shared resources within the network, your virtual data center deployment remains completely isolated from other customers due to our utilization of VMware’s vCloud Platform. This network is supported and housed within an impeccably protected physical data center, located in Mahwah, NJ, which provides the same level of security, performance, scalability, manageability and availability, as our NYSE exchanges.
The management of both virtual and physical environments is made possible by strict governance, risk management and compliance policies, developed and implemented by IT Asset Management (ITAM). All security measures for the physical data center and virtual liquidity network were created in direct adherence with the highest industry standards such as ISO 27002 and the Cloud Security Alliance.
Our approach to secure cloud computing utilizes a defense-in-depth design strategy, while embedding security into each layer of the network, application, system, database and storage. Given that technology is only as effective as its ease of use, NYSE Technologies includes a convenient single sign-on portal so that an end-user can seamlessly log in with while simultaneously mitigating risk of unauthorized access.
